Positively Pink Set ($18, $30 value) was made available, I purchased two. I was impressed that a portion of proceeds would be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Plus, I thought the warm, wearable pinks looked perfect. I was right. I'm loving mine. Now one of you will have a chance to love yours.
Have I ever told you that one of the biggest reasons I love Stila is Sarah Lucero? I met her in New York. She is Stila's Celebrity Makeup Artist - and one of the sweetest people in beauty you will ever meet. Sarah was working at a media party to freshen our makeup - and introduced anyone who had been hiding in a closet to Stila. Just a few minutes in Sarah's chair, and I looked fabulous. She made me feel like a pampered celebrity. You ought to follow her on Twitter. Her "handle" is @stilaPROartist. She is a sweetie. She posts cool photos too, such as this one.
Back to the makeup. The whimsical set features a multicolored, embossed pressed powder palette with the pink ribbons that are emblematic of breast cancer causes, plus a deluxe-sized glossy Lip Glaze coordinate beautifully. Although I purchased them in the fall, they are absolutely perfect spring shades.
The set contains the Positively Pink Cheek Palette and a Lip Glaze in Splendor, the latter a limited-edition shade designed for the set. I have one set to give away.
How can you enter to win this giveaway contest (technically a sweepstakes)? Just leave a comment on this feature (not in another BTiB post). After you comment here, feel free to send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (the contest address, not my "personal" e-mail) and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing an e-mail address you care about on a blog, so feel free to follow this step (an alternative is to code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment). Please make sure I have your e-mail. If I can't notify you, you can't win - even if your number is drawn. I can't believe the number of winners I haven't been able to find in the past.
You can earn extra entries. Follow this blog (through an e-mail subscription, GFC, or though one of the many Google readers - see sidebar at right) to earn a second entry. If you are a follower, it would help me tally entries if you tell me in your comment how you follow. You don't have to follow to enter. I want everyone to have a chance, but I also want to reward my followers. I must be able to track this entry.
You can earn a third entry by tweeting this contest. You must include "@BTiBeauty" (without the quotes) and the contest title in your tweet. Remember, tweet the contest title - if you don't, that entry won't count. I will tweet the contest early this evening, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.
Readers who are United States residents and also enter the Suave Beauty giveaway contest will receive a fourth entry.
The deadline for entries will be Saturday, February 9, 2013, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the winner. I will e-mail the winner on Sunday morning. The winner will have 48 hours to reply to my message and provide a shipping address. After 48 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected. Make sure to check your e-mail - and look in your spam folder - when the contest ends.
This contest is open to anyone anywhere. Here are the terms. I will carefully pack and ship the prize (as I always do). I cannot insure the prize for overseas shipment - it's amazingly expensive to do so because of the way I have to send insured mail. If it's lost or stolen in transit, I may not be able to replace it with another prize just like it. I'll do my best on this end; let's see if your mail service does right by you on the other end if we have an overseas winner.
The winner must be able to provide me with a "mailable address," meaning the U.S. Post Office recognizes it or its street, province, and other "elements" the way the winner provides them. I've had some trouble with both U.S. and international addresses lately.
For all the legalese related to this contest, please see the Contests/Sweepstakes page at the top of the blog. Good luck!
P.S. There will be a flash sample giveaway this week. Stay in touch.
